Facts about Croatia
Stuff to See and Do
What to Eat
Burek is a heavy pastry made from thin layers of dough, filled with meat, cheese, and/or vegetables. Sounds like the perfect dish for someone who prefers meat over fruit for breakfast. Just ask any man where he gets his burek. Because it is traditionally served for breakfast, you probably won't find it after 2pm.
Continuing with the traditionally meat-rich dishes of the region, one local favorite of Croatians is cevapi (pronounced che-vap-pee), minced meat sausages made from lamb, beef, and pork. These little links of heaven are seasoned with garlic, S&P, parsley, and paprika. Cevapi can come with fries or flat bread and onions. Although I ate mine with basically a ball of butter, you can also find it served with a red sauce called ajvar.
